Mondaloa    Locations  (City)   (Plains)

Mondaloa is a name shared by both a city and a deity.  Mondaloa, the city, is built on layers of crypts and tombs that are far more opulent and majestic than the city that covers them.  Mondaloa, the deity, is the god of rest, peace, and death.  There is nothing Mondaloa desires more than to see the dead buried deep in their tombs where they can rest in honor and peace.  But there is trouble: something is torturing the dead of the city, and driving them to madness and rage.  Now, 500 years of honored ancestors are trickling into the city above, seeking blood and pain and death.

A little way up the narrow valley, before they reach the woods, the PCs notice the squat, tumbledown buildings by the riverside. They are hardly big enough for a human to stand in, and the complex cogs and shafts that occupy the central cavity of one of the buildings are perplexing. What were these buildings? And how safe are they to explore?

Alternatively a desolate place is the perfect setting for a derelict chapel or croft. There needn't be any actual physical encounter involved, but it adds atmosphere to a place to see its dead history. For instance, in the Outer Hebrides there are whole deserted villages which were razed to the ground by the English during the Clearances. Such stories give a setting authenticity and character.
